    Re: Lift?

    Aussie locker

    I have been researching all the locker possibilities. The ultimate seems to be the air activated ARB but they are totally out of my price range for now.

    Re: lift kit and drive shaft alignment

    I did some research on Powertrax. It is an automatic locker like a Detroit Locker. I may take the leap on this one. $453 including shipping is a decent price.
